New Faculty, Staff & MPPs

Welcome to the Spartan Community: Your Journey to Success Begins Here!

At San José State University, we're not just welcoming new employees; we're welcoming new members to our thriving community. Our mission is to provide an extraordinary onboarding experience that sets you up for success from day one.


Important: By or on your first day

It is strongly recommended that you complete the new hire paperwork prior to your first day of employment.

Completing these steps beforehand allows us to get you set up quicker in the system and lets you jump right into your exciting new role!

For more information, please visit New Hire Paperwork.

After you have completed your new hire paperwork and received your SJSU Employment Verification Confirmation (EVC) Email:

  • Activate Your SJSUOne and Duo Accounts
    • These steps can only be done after your I-9 Verification and New Hire Paperwork are complete. You will receive a message at the email address you provided on your application alerting you that your SJSU Email has been created. After receiving that email, please wait 24-48 hours to activate your SJSUOne and Duo accounts as the process may not be fully complete when you receive the email. If after 48 hours you are not able to activate your SJSUOne account, please contact for assistance.
